Samsung unveils the world’s first 1TB eUFS 2.1 memory chip
Samsung just announced the world’s first 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1 memory chip for use in the next generation smartphones and mobile apps.
Compared to its 512GB counterpart, the 1TB eUFS 2.1 solution has 16 stacked layers of Samsung’s most advanced 512Gb V-NAND flash memory and a new proprietary controller.
Samsung states that the 1TB eUFS 2.1 solution can store 260 10-minute 4K videos and support transfer speeds of up to 1,000MB/s. You can offload 5GB Full-HD videos to an NVMe SSD in as fast as 5 seconds, which is 10x the speed of a typical microSD card.
Random read speeds are said to be up to 38% faster than the 512GB version. This means it can support high-speed continuous shooting at 960 fps and allow users to take advantage of the multi-camera capabilities in today and upcoming flagship phones.
Samsung will expand the production of the 1TB eUFS 2.1 solution in the first half of the year as it anticipates strong demand from many smartphone makers.
